Mold Your Future to Fit Your Passion

Countless careers require artistic creation. But unlike many forms of art, ceramics engages both beauty and function. From everyday kitchenware to one-of-a-kind works of decor, your creative ability doesn’t fit just one purpose.

Explore various types of clay and other material. Refine your abilities through hand-built and wheel-blown techniques. Mold. Glaze. Trim. Paint. And, of course, operate the kiln. From conception to final display, pursue your passion with a Bachelor of Arts in Art with a concentration in ceramics at North Greenville University.

What Can I Do with a Concentration in Ceramics?

Pursuing ceramics allows you to embark on a creative journey that merges artistry with craftsmanship. With a focus on working with clay and mastering various techniques, you have the opportunity to shape and mold objects of functional and aesthetic beauty.

The world of ceramics offers endless possibilities for self-expression and exploration, whether you choose to create functional pottery, intricate sculptures, or innovative ceramic installations. Embrace the tactile nature of the medium as you unleash your creativity, hone your skills, and leave a lasting impression through the art of ceramics.
